What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access provides us with an opportunity to engage with players and gather valuable feedback to further refine and enhance Crystalis Descendant. We believe that involving the community during development will help us identify and address potential issues, as well as shape the game in a way that aligns with player preferences.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that the Early Access phase of Crystalis Descendant will last for approximately 9 months. While this is our current estimation, please understand that the exact duration can be influenced by a variety of factors, including the incorporation of additional content and features, the valuable feedback we receive from our dedicated player community, and the resolution of any unforeseen challenges that may arise during development.

We are committed to transparent communication throughout this journey. We will be providing regular updates on our development milestones, new features, and any adjustments to our timeline. Our goal is to ensure that we deliver a polished and captivating gaming experience that lives up to the high standards we have set for Crystalis Descendant.

Please stay tuned for further announcements and developments, and thank you for your enthusiasm and support as we work towards creating an exceptional game together!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Crystalis Descendant is planned to offer a more polished and comprehensive gaming experience compared to the Early Access version. While the Early Access version will introduce core gameplay mechanics and a significant portion of the game world, the full version will feature expanded content, additional gameplay mechanics, refined graphics and sound, a deeper storyline, and more diverse characters and adversaries. The full version will truly represent the vision we have for Crystalis Descendant.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of Crystalis Descendant will provide players with a solid foundation to experience the core gameplay mechanics, and provide feedback on their experiences. It will be an exciting opportunity for players to get a taste of what's to come and actively participate in the game's development journey.

For more details please check out the About This section below!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The pricing structure during and after Early Access will be designed to reflect the value of the content available in each respective phase. While we won't provide specific prices in different currencies, we want to assure players that we plan to be fair and transparent with our pricing strategy.

We may consider adjusting the price as we add substantial new content and features to the game during the Early Access period. However, we intend to communicate these changes clearly to our community and ensure that players feel they are getting a worthwhile experience for their investment.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community's involvement is paramount to us. We are committed to fostering an open and active dialogue with our players throughout the development process. We plan to establish regular channels of communication, such as developer blogs, forums, and social media, where players can share their thoughts, suggestions, and concerns. This feedback will guide our decision-making and influence the direction of the game.

Additionally, we will be actively seeking out player feedback on specific features, gameplay elements, and potential additions. We may even consider implementing limited-time testing phases for new content to ensure it aligns with player expectations before a wider release.

By engaging the community, we aim to create a collaborative and dynamic development process that results in a final version of Crystalis Descendant that players will thoroughly enjoy. While we won't make specific promises about release dates or future events, we are dedicated to working closely with our players to shape the game into something truly remarkable.”
